On January 1, 2024, Japan was hit by a magnitude 7.6 earthquake, causing USD 17.6 billion in infrastructure damage. This event highlights the critical need for seismic-resilient construction.

Advanced engineering practices, such as base isolation and reinforced structural components, can significantly enhance building stability during earthquakes. This is exemplified by Taiwan's tallest skyscraper, Taipei 101 which recently withstood a powerful 7.4-magnitude earthquake with minimal damage, showcasing the effectiveness of its innovative design. Acumen Research and Consulting has stated that the global seismic reinforcement materials market revenue is projected to increase by USD 46.1 billion by 2032, encouraging companies to continue investing in research and development to introduce advanced materials and techniques. Such advancements not only enhance seismic resilience in construction projects worldwide but also play a crucial role in safeguarding lives and assets against future seismic events.

Despite residing in a seismically active region, Japan's strict adherence to building codes has led to the creation of some of the world's most robust seismic-resistant structures. Contrastingly, at least 75,000 buildings in the affected earthquake zone in Turkey were found to have received construction amnesties, culminating in the Urbanization Ministry estimating that at least 84,700 buildings collapsed or suffered severe damage after the quake in February 2023. The magnitude of such destruction underscores the significance of employing efficient and ethical construction techniques in seismic-prone areas.

Seismic-proof construction isn't just a mandatory requirement; it ensures the safety of occupants, mitigates financial risks, and bolsters the overall resilience of communities in seismic-prone areas.
